First post on this forum. I just purchased my first Montblanc fountain pen at an Estate sale and I’m trying to determine the model and value for this pen. This pen was purchased by the original owner in the late 80s, early 90s.

 

Top band says Germany, Mid band says Montblanc-Meisterstuck. Nib says 4810 18k Montblanc 750. 

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you.

Looks like a 144 Classique to my eyes.

 

Not sure of the value.

I agree it looks like the older version of a Meisterstück Classique or 144 as they were also known. It's a cartridge or converter filler. No longer in production and has been replaced by the 145 or new Classique with screw cap

 

Check out eBay 'sold items' for current values.

I agree, it looks like the older style 144.  FWIW, this was my entry pen into this obsession.  My wife gifted my a 144 in the early 90's, my first fountain pen since those Sheaffer Cartridge pens in Jr. High in the mid 60's.  I wrote with the 144 for more than a few years and then started searching for finer nibbed pens; now that was a rabbit hole!  

 

Your pen will work with cartridges or a converter.  It should be a nice writing pen.  Good luck with it.  And welcome to the obsession!


May we live, not by our fears but by our hopes; not by our words but by our deeds; not by our disappointments but by our dreams.

I like the photos you shared, as they provide a clear idea about your nice pen.

 

The monotone 18K gold nib looks great!

 

May it be an enjoyable writer for you.

Thank you all. This is exactly what I was looking for. I will be looking for a Montblanc Ballpoint Pen in the near future as well.

 

What did I get myself into...

:D Don't worry, that question is just like the initial rash... and it subsides quickly.  You'll forget you ever asked it.

How about acquiring a nice 146 or 149?
